Don’t miss Patsy!

You know, I’ve already run into three people who saw the “Always… Patsy Cline” show last weekend at the Community Theatre, and all three say it’s a wonderful experience. Then I got this nice note from John Maya that reminds you why a) you gotta go see the show and b) why Kate Schman & Julie Greene are island treasures. Here’s more, from John:
Not being “Country and Western” fans or familiar with the musical “Always… Patsy Cline,” my wife and I were a little apprehensive when we attended preview night at the San Juan Community Theater on May 2.
To say we enjoyed the show is an understatement. We attend the theater frequently and often leave in awe of the effort involved in and quality of our small community theater’s local productions. Of the many local productions we have seen, this one definitely has a place high on the list of our favorites.
Kate Schuman’s vocal talent, Julie Greene’s acting and “The Bodacious Bobcats Band” are all superb. Director Merritt Olsen and the production team (too seldom recognized) have good reason to be proud of their effort.
For anyone feeling “Country and Western” is not their genre and are hesitant to attend, don’t be. This is a charming and funny show and Kate Schuman’s voice and interpretation of Patsy Cline is marvelous. In addition, several of the songs are familiar standards and were crossover pop hits of the early 60’s. You will certainly be hearing rave reviews about this fabulous production as more islanders attend.
Don’t miss it.
